The Atlanta Survivor Camp was a base camp established in a forest just outside the city of Atlanta, Georgia. It plays a major location in Volume 1 of The Walking Dead.


Rural Georgia

Before the outbreak, the camp site was a dense forest and a lake/river or bed of water. Numerous animals such as squirrels, birds, deer, and fish all live in the area living and feeding off the vegetation. The State of Georgia most likely allowed campers to use this area as a public park space to camp and fish.
